2018 Acura ILX Tune-Up & Engine Service

Tune Into Your Acura ILX

Is it time for an engine tune-up? If you usually wait until your car has an issue to take it in for service, now is the time to work on that habit, especially if you want your 2018 Acura ILX’s engine to last for a long time. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your ILX. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run efficiently, which can lead to lower emission levels and better fuel economy. When you follow the guidelines specified by Acura for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your ILX’s engine running smoother, longer.

Acura ILX Engine Tune-Up Services

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 2018 Acura ILX. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option. It includes a complete visual inspection of engine components, installation of new spark plugs, and a lifetime warranty on parts*. The second service focuses on your ILX's filters, specifically replacing the air filter and fuel filter. Yet another service is a fuel system cleaning process, which involves removing varnish, dirt, and carbon deposits that have built up inside the fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate in your ILX. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your ILX: your vehicle’s maintenance record and mileage can determine which service is best. A one-size-fits-all engine tune-up procedure doesn’t necessarily exist. Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.

Where Should I Go for My Acura ILX Tune-Up?

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for your next 2018 ILX engine tune-up. Consult your vehicle’s recommended service schedule from Acura, or make a service appointment if you notice any of these symptoms from your engine: shaking while the engine is idling, poor fuel economy, an illuminated check engine light on your dashboard, or a knocking sound when the engine is running.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 2018 Acura ILXs

  • When should Acura ILX spark plugs be replaced? When it’s time to replace the spark plugs, don’t delay. These small (but vital!) parts provide the electric spark that your car needs in order to start, and old spark plugs can prevent your car from starting at all. Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so.
  • What does a puddle underneath my Acura ILX mean? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Acura ILX. It could signal a coolant leak, brake fluid leak, or an oil leak. Let any one of these leaks linger and it could cause engine damage.
  • What do hard starts and stops do to my ILX engine? Hard starts and stops put extra wear and tear on engine components. Smooth, gradual starts and stops, on the other hand, are a great way to help your engine run better. They can also help maximize your fuel economy.
